Pros

They pay on time and get things right. The Humana vision and dental insurance they provide is good.

Cons

There is no guarantee that the client they find for you is in the same ballpark. Contracts can be very open-ended and unspecific - although this is likely driven by their clients. It pays to push for specificity in the contract and make sure that you are introduced to not just the hiring manager, but colleagues and higher level managers before taking a position. This is particularly true for Txxxx; which has apparently gained a certain notoriety among contractors for having less-than perfect IT managers. TW appears to do their best to intercede between difficult clients and contractors when necessary.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for abuse in your from your managers and supervisors. Don't put a green stamp in the mail, letting them know it's okay to treat people that way. Investigate when problems arise, and never blame the person that have been abusive. Finally, never ever fire the person who has been wrongly and blacklist them.
